About the Event

Honouring Canada's LGBTQ emerging writers.

Every year in June, the Writers’ Trust of Canada hosts a ceremony in celebration of the finalists for the Dayne Ogilvie Prize for LGBTQ Emerging Writers. Free and open to the public, the award ceremony is a joyous, warm, and inclusive space where the LGBTQ community and allies come together over drinks and hors d’oeuvres to celebrate the exceptional award honourees. The reception includes a reading from each finalist and culminates in moving remarks from the winner. We hope you can join us for the 2019 Dayne Ogilvie Prize ceremony in Halifax on Saturday, June 1.
